ﬁhe sun, doubt react in a similarly worrying ways. in the sun, slain, this is the other tack today, there have been three, one in switzerland, germany and this, terror at christmas, putin's man executed just hours later, this is after truck bomb, nine die in market truck attack, umm, so, natalie, the sun and the other papers putting these stories together, evidential in not necessarily linked, and want expert i spoke with set, look, do not discount the power of coincidence, it could simply be confidence, but this man shouting allah before he publicly shoots the ambassador from russia —— allahu akbar. publicly shoots the ambassador from russia -- allahu akbar. the papers haven't run with this today because
they have gone with him and with germany. if ever there was an example needed of how ordinary, innocent victims, especially those in aleppo, there you go. . he was an official policeman who used his identity badge to get into the gallery. and while perhaps the aim, given what he was shouting, was to try and distance turkey from russia and russian attacks in syria, ironically it could bring the countries closer together in terms of cooperation. you can see that, can't you, strongman turning against the west and peace and president erdogan will seize on this to unite against terror. they have the tension when turkey shot down the
russian airliner and they came together closer after that, so there is no reason to think this incident would disturb the relationship i think. it is striking that the sun has gone with the assassin, rather than what happened in germany, which is closer to home and affected many people, and this appears to be a terror at, as we said, and would resonate stronger with british readers, but this picture is, it is just extraordinary, isn't it, holding the gun, pointing it in the air, and it is quite incredible to ca ptu re air, and it is quite incredible to capture that moment. indeed. what a day it has been, pretty horrible, but it has been good to have you both into the studio. thank you both. that is it for the papers. coming up now, it is time for sportsday. hello, this is sport today, live from the bbc sport centre.
coming up on this programme: late drama as sadio mane scores in the 94th minute to hand liverpool a 1—0 win over everton. fifa find the four home nations a total of £78,000 for displaying poppies in their world club all the fires last month. —— world cup qualifiers last month. the highest total ever conceded by england in their loss against india. hello, and welcome to the programme, where we start with news liverpool's sadio mane scored in the 94th minute to hand jurgen klopp's side a 1—0 victory taking them second six points
behind leaders chelsea. jurgen klopp moves to second in the premier league table, six behind chelsea. the season of goodwill was there to see outside goodison park, but this is the merseyside derby and the atmosphere changes once inside. the visiting fans brought their sense of humour, reminding everton of their long wait for silverware. but there was little on the pitch for them to laugh about. there were more fouls and shorts in this frenetic, bruising encounter. neither goalkeeper had to make a save until the second half, when martin stekelenburg was with this first one from roberto firmino. he was u nfortu nate from roberto firmino. he was unfortunate on. the everton goalkeeper struggled on before being replaced. liverpool's task might have been made easier if referee mike dean have the benefit of tv replay after ross barkley clattered into liverpool captain jordan
henderson. the everton midfielder only saw yellow when many might have felt it should have been red. in the end it didn't matter. liverpool got what they came for. they had to wait until injury time. substitute daniel sturridge‘s effort falling nicely for to win the match. it was far from pretty but liverpool manager jurgen klopp and the team won't care, neither will be visiting fans, who left with the bragging rights. we could have scored earlier. not a lot of chances. most importantly we didn't give chances away. so it was quite difficult against an opponent who only wants to disturb your game, so, yeah... not the hardest, i would say, but hard enough, and thankfully he could finish the situation. wonderful feeling, he could finish the situation. wonderfulfeeling, i he could finish the situation. wonderful feeling, i have he could finish the situation. wonderfulfeeling, i have to he could finish the situation. wonderful feeling, i have to say, really good. everything good.|j wonderful feeling, i have to say, really good. everything good. i know
exactly how fast is. he was reacting the first player on the pitch and, 0k, it is the post and it is coming back, and 0k we did not deserve the goal, because i think the team performance was outstanding. can i ask you about ross barkley and that jordan henderson challenge, it looked fairly nasty and is it fair to say he was lucky to stay on the pitch? maybe, i don't know. i know that it was a hard tackle but to watch the clip, to have an opinion about each yellow or each red, it wasn't a hard tackle —— it was a ha rd wasn't a hard tackle —— it was a hard tackle. the fa say they will appeal the decision by fifa to fine them for displaying poppies in the game against scotland in the world cup. they have all been sanctioned against the governing body for marking armistice day. england was fined £35,000, marking armistice day. england was fined £35, 000, scotland
marking armistice day. england was fined £35,000, scotland and wales £15,000, and northern ireland £a000. leicester city will appealjamie vardy‘s red card against stoke city. he was sent off in the first half for a dangerous tackle. leicester believe jamie va rdy for a dangerous tackle. leicester believe jamie vardy was knocked off balance. leicester came back from 2-0 balance. leicester came back from 2—0 down to draw the match. england suffered in the subcontinent for the fourth day of the final test on sunday. the host declared for 759, the highest total ever conceded by england. at the close, england we re by england. at the close, england were 270 runs behind. quick wickets would be required if england got anything out of the match, but with the first test century from karim, the game got away, and he wasjoined by ashwin century from karim, the game got away, and he was joined by ashwin at the crease who wasted little time making his presence felt. as he made
50 it seemed the best tourist could hope for was a draw, whereas india fancied a 4—0 series victory. karim made hay, england struggle to contain him, soon he passed 150. it has been the mark of this tour that whenever england assumed they put on a substantial total, india skip deonte, and in the back of his mind, karun would have remembered how his teammate raheem fell at 199, but he displayed no reticent, converting a maiden hundred into a double century for the third time in india. karun strolled past 250 and broke 300 with one of the great batting performances. india had registered their highest ever test score. in reply england survived the five overs but look like they had had enough. in two days they will be on the plane home for christmas, in spirit they were already long gone.
we were out there to win this, you know, the last couple of test matches, so they won't want to get on the plane in a couple of days' time after losing another test match, they will want to bat as well as they can to bat out the three sessions. australia survived a mighty scare in brisbane after pakistan felljust 39 runs short of completing what would have been a world record run chase in the first test of their series. they were set the unlikely target of 490 but pakistani began needing 108 i’u ns 490 but pakistani began needing 108 runs with two wickets remaining. the last of which fell just a0 short of victory. quick reactions from australian captain steve smith. less so australian captain steve smith. less so from the pakistani batsmen. the second test is under way in melbourne on boxing day. that boxing day test is an institution, of course. now, on to cycling. team sky boss sir dave brailsford
has told a house of commons select committee in the uk that a package delivered to his team at the 2011 criterium du dauphine, won by sir bradley wiggins, contained a decongestant. he has told the house of commons select committee that it was a decongestant. a british newspaper allegation had put team sky under pressure to reveal the contents of the package, but they couldn't until now, because of an ongoing uk anti—doping investigation. in hindsight, dave brailsford regrets how he handled the situation. there are always lessons to be learned and you have to start with yourself and i have looked at myself long and hard in the mirror and yourself and i have looked at myself long and hard in the mirrorand i have thought about it very carefully in terms of howl have thought about it very carefully in terms of how i handled personally the situation and i think it could have been a lot better. i would like to think in performance terms we have done quite well but on this occasion and the way i have managed this i think, like i say, i will start with myself first and not look at anyone else. we had a fantastic operation, fantastic people, they are the highest standards, they have
got great integrity, and they do not quite frankly deserve to have had this shadow cast over them. and i say that each and every one of them in this team have not been easy and there are people performing so well which do not deserve any shadow whatsoever. the bobsleigh and skeleton world championships will be held in germany after the original venue, the 201a winter olympics city of sochi, was stripped of the rights to stage it following allegations surrounding russian state—sponsored doping. the event takes place in germany from february 13. and onto darts, two—time champion adrian lewis is in the second round of the pdc championships. the world number five, known as jackpot, one in 2011 and 2012 at the alexandra palace. he was relatively untroubled this evening, hitting five 1805 in a 3—0
